11,109 New cases of Covid are reported in India, the most since August 21.

11,109 new cases of COVID were reported in India today, bringing the total number of active infections to 49,622. According to data from the Union health ministry, the number of daily COVID cases is at its highest level in 236 days. 29 deaths brought the total to 5,31,064 deaths.

The data, updated at 8 am, showed that nine deaths were reconciled by Kerala, three deaths each from Delhi and Rajasthan, two deaths each from Chhattisgarh and Punjab, and one death each from Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharastra, Odisha, Puducherry, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand, and Uttar Pradesh.

Medical professionals have suggested that the new XBB.1.16 form of the virus may be the cause of the sudden rise in Covid cases, which has been occurring over time. They argued that people should have their booster shots and behave in a Covid-appropriate manner rather than panicking.

They added that this increase in occurrences may be due to more patients receiving Covid tests as a preventative measure when they actually contract the flu and exhibit fever and accompanying symptoms. According to the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR), influenza A subtype H3N2 is to blame for the rise in influenza incidence. More hospitalisations are being caused by the H3N2 virus than by the other subtypes. A runny nose, a persistent cough, and a fever are the symptoms.
